Hi everybody!

I'm having fun with a D100 for a few weeks now. I just tried to make some printed. And I'm not very pleased of the result. I want to discuss two things here:

1/ Digital images post-processing:
I tried Nikon View 5, Capture 3, Photoshop 7 and Bible 3, and I might be stupid, but it is easy stuff to get the good result from your images, especially if they are NEFs...

2/ Display calibration:
Receiving my printings, I come to the conclusion that their job is crap, or my monitor is not calibrated at all... What's strange is that often my jpegs looks good on my screen without any changes to colors, so is my screen calibrated? I just ordered a ColorVision Spyder. I hope it works!
ColorVision

So, do you have experience in pos-processing your shots? I would like to get better results shooting NEFs, but would like to achieve good post-processing!

Thanks for helping!
